Coping With the Transient Student.
Goodman, Thomas L.
Student transients in San Diego Unified School District occur as transfers from outside the local district, transfers from within the local district, immigrants from other countries, and dropouts. The 22,000 transient students each year create problems related to: (1) internal organization, staffing, planning, and programs to minimize educational interruption and personal readjustment due to the transiency; (2) programs to take into account non-English-speaking or multilingual pupils in the schools; and (3) a system to accommodate pupils who have withdrawn from another school system without stated intention, preventing records from following in a prompt fashion. Most of the problems could be alleviated by national planning, cooperation, and adequate support for public education. (Author/DW)
